Doctor News

Back home and Sandi is doing pretty well. Oral chemo sideffects have been manageable so far and her blood work has not taken much of a hit. The fact that her white blood cell count dropped a little bit as well as a couple of other things is not surprising and should go away once she is off the oral chemo pill. All her other bloodwork looked very good and it seems that, at least for now, the anemia issue has gone away and she has stabalized.

In view of all that, the doctor decided that we could skip coming next week and have a week off from coming in to be checked. So, the next appointment is in two weeks when she has bloodwork and a doctor visit.

Things seem to be going as well as we could expect. Hopefully, they really are.

So far so good......I get very nervous when things seem like they are going well with her as that means something is going to blow up. Hopefully, this time will be different.

Still sending good thoughts your way. I hope this means you can take a deep breath and ease up for awhile. I truly understand the feeling that things are going too well, prepare for a disaster. It's like the old joke/line from a cowboy show: It's quiet. Too quiet.

Best wishes to you and yours.
